U.S. Army Shirt – Value $15+?
This month’s shirt is not marked as exclusive – but I wasn’t able to find it online for pricing – so I’m estimating the price based on subscription box shirts. It features a pretty classic and streamline design – highlighting the Army’s year of origin.
U.S. Army Challenge Coin – Value $10-15?
Hi there is actually a reason they are called challenge coins. If you lose the
Challenge you have to buy the drinks!
This month’s coin features a newer looking Army logo than last month.
U.S. Army Luggage Tag – Value $10-15?
You’ll get a set of two bendable vinyl luggage tags featuring the same crest.
These are heavy duty for sure – and will last and take a beating while your luggage goes through baggage claim!
U.S. Army Magnet – Value $7 on Amazon
The final three items in the box feature the more classic crest.
This magnet features a pin-like body – great for use on the refrigerator.
U.S. Army Eagle Crest Patch – Value $5-10?
You’ll also receive an embroidered Eagle Crest patch.
These are made with a heat-seal backing allowing you to easily iron it on to any fabric you’d like!
U.S. Army Eagle Crest Lapel Pin – Value $5-10?
The last item in the box is an Eagle Crest lapel pin. It’s the perfect size to wear on your lapel, backpack, jacket – where ever you’d like!
Verdict: My values add up to around $72 – and that’s really good for the cost of the box – but I didn’t find it hard to apply values to the items, so I could be a bit high or low on the items. I’m still not entirely sure if this box would be best gifted to a military member or the family of a military member – commenters are tending to lean toward the latter – what do you think?
